Panarterial Revascularization for CAD

The long-term clinical benefit of panarterial revascularization (PAR) versus PCI in patients with multi-vessel CAD has not been studies. Data from a single center study has indicated that as compared with DES PCI, PAR is associated with improved survival and reduced re-intervention.

Beta Blocker in MI – Dose May Not Matter

Although beta-blocker therapy following an MI has been associated with improved survival, it is unclear whether this is dose related. A multicenter registry has confirmed the reduction in mortality associated with beta-blockers in this group of patients and that this reduction is seen across a wide range of doses.

Immune Modulation to Improve Stroke Outcomes

Ischemia mediated activation of immune responses may lead to adverse outcomes in patients sustaining a stroke. A multicenter study of 25 patients, examining whether a combination of immune modulation with fingolimod and altepase, has indicated that this approach may lead to improvements in clinical outcomes as well as reduce reperfusion injury.

PET/CTA For Prosthetic Valve & Device Endocarditis

The diagnosis of endocarditis affecting prosthetic valves and intracardiac devices may be challenging. A single center study of 92 such patients using 18F-FDG PET/CT and 18F-FDG PET/CT angiography has shown that although both techniques dramatically improve the diagnostic accuracy of endocarditis, the latter also identifies larger number of anatomic lesions associated with active endocarditis.
